Three layers of dark chocolate cake are filling and surrounded by a seven-minute frosting. The finish: sweetened coconut. This is a perfect birthday cake.
For this soup, onions, mixed greens, and soaked chewy bread are layered with milk, stewed leeks, and cheese then slowly baked until thick and bubbly.
